Pressing Need for Copious Volumes of Clean Drinking Water Stoking Demand for Ion Exchange Membrane

Published Date : May 02, 2018

ALBANY, New York,  May 2, 2018: has announced the addition of a new market study to its repository, titled, “Ion Exchange Membrane Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast 2016–2024.” The report states that ion exchange membrane find usage in various areas, particularly for addressing energy and environmental problems.

Ion-exchange membranes carry dissolved ions across a conductive polymeric membrane. They find maximum application in desalination and chemical recovery, moving ions from one solution to another with limited passage of water. They are typically used in diffusion dialysis for seawater desalination and industrial waste water treatment. The market for ion exchange membrane is expected to rise in the next couple of the years on the back of pressing demand for clean drinking water worldwide. Besides, their demand is also expected to be stoked by rising industrial activities in the domain of mining, oil and gas, chemical, power, and petrochemical.

However, on the downside, the demand for ion exchange membrane is being dampened to a degree by non-ionized organic contamination which could be on account of leftover organics mixing up with new commercial grade ion exchange membranes with the organic fragments getting released as polymer structures by old membranes as a result of decrosslinkage of material. Contamination of this kind renders ion exchange membranes unfit for any usage.

Despite such drawbacks, the market is placed firmly on a steady growth trajectory due to rising applications of ion exchange membranes across a range of industries requiring membranes with unique properties. The myriad requirements for ion exchange membranes has led to the development of a variety of membranes.

Having thrown light on the major trends shaping the trajectory for the market for ion exchange membrane, the report goes on to segment it based on different parameters. On the basis of charge, for example, it segments the market into anion, cation, amphoteric ion, mosaic ion, and bipolar ion. Based on material again, it segments the market into perfluorocarbon membrane,

hydrocarbon membrane, composite membrane, inorganic membrane, and partially halogented membrane. Application-wise, it segments the market into electrolysis, electrodialysis, chromatographic separation, waste water treatment, desalination, and radioactive liquid waste treatment.

For the purpose of study, the report also segments the market for ion exchange membrane on the basis of regions into Asia Pacific, North America, Europe, and the Middle East and Africa. Of them, Asia Pacific is a leading region owing to its large population which has driven up demand for clean water considerably. The speedy industrialization in the region due to the presence of many developing regions is also fuelling the market. China is one of the prominent drivers of the Asia Pacific market.

Some of the key players operating in the market that have been profiled in the report are Lanxess, 3M, Ion Exchange Ltd., and The Dow Chemical Company.
